Lego Doctor Who

This is happening.

A very good starting set too - two Doctors, Clara, the TARDIS interior and exterior, two Daleks and a Weeping Angel. (Based on Time Of The Doctor, which is a bit oddly specific, but hey.)

A new spinoff! Eight forty-five minute episodes! Set in Coal Hill School!

“No one has documented the dark and exhilarating world of the teenager like Patrick Ness, and now we’re bringing his brilliant story-telling into Doctor Who. This is growing up in modern Britain - but with monsters!”
Steven Moffat, introducing the series and its head writer, YA author Patrick Ness, previously one of the writers in the Eleven Doctors, Eleven Stories book.

The announcement includes comparisons to Buffy The Vampire Slayer as well as The Hunger Games, which is a high bar to aim for. Fingers crossed!

The Witch's Familiar

Missy is the Witch, one presumes...

Happy Stanislav Petrov Day!

On this day in 1983, Stanislav Petrov correctly concluded that an ICBM warning was a false alarm, and therefore prevented the launch of what would have probably been an apocalyptic counterstrike at some sunlight reflecting on some clouds.

The Magician's Apprentice

This might qualify as a tenth anniversary special of the revived show, taking in as it does some of the greatest hits of the Davies era as well as revisiting some of Mr. Moffat’s own additions.

HERE BE SPOILERS. Step carefully.


Bit excited.

In the meantime...

You’re always making jokes. You never sit still. Like a man in fear of days to come...

The Impossible Girl

I’ll be sorry to see Jenna Coleman go as Clara. To celebrate her long (and for a while infinite) companion run, check out my daft idea for all the stories she could share with every Doctor.
